Set the Primary Language for Google Voice Typing on an HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, JellyBean, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how to choose a primary language for Google voice typing on an HTC One M8.
To begin, let's turn the phone on by pressing the Power button, located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we'll see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and hold down until the lock/unlock icon is displayed, then swipe up.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we'll see the Home screen with several icons at the bottom.
We now need to swipe the Notification panel down.
Press down at the top of the screen, hold down, and swipe down.
We can see the Notification panel has appeared.
We are looking for the icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen that looks like a white cog.
This is our Settings icon.
Press down on the icon, and it will open up the Settings menu.
The word "Settings" will be in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Let's scroll down until we get to the "PHONE" section, where we'll see the word "PHONE" in the gray bar.
Scroll down to find "Language & keyboard".
Next to these words, we'll see the icon, which is a 3-D square with a capital "A" inside.
Press down on this section, and it will bring up our "Language & keyboard" menu.
We're looking for the that says, "Google voice typing", which refers to when we use our microphone to speak to our phone, and it types what we say to it.
Press down on this option, then we're looking for the first option at the top that says "Languages".
Right now it says "Default primary: English (UK) Others: Espanol (Espana)". This function allows us to edit the primary language for the Google voice typing function, which can be very useful. Even though it's set to English, for example, if you're from an English-speaking country such as Australia or even India, where there are many native speakers who speak English as a first language, the accent is very different. If we have the wrong setting, then it will make it difficult for Google to understand your voice. That's why setting the primary language can be very useful.
Let's press down on the word "Languages".
We can see that it says, "To select a primary language, touch & hold" on a language.
We have "English (UK)", which has a blue box to the left that is checked.
After scrolling down, we see that we also have "Espanol (Espana)" with a check in the blue box to show that these two options are selected.
If we want to make one of them a primary language for this function, we need to press down on the actual name of the language.
Hold down until it says at the bottom, "Espanol (Espana) selected as the primary language".
It doesn't matter how many languages we choose, and we can press on the boxes to select as many languages as we want.
However, if we want to make one a primary language, find the language desired, press down on that language.
Then hold down until it gives a confirmation at the bottom of the screen, such as, "English (UK) selected as the primary language".
Once we're happy with our choice, we can press down in the bottom right-hand corner where it says "Save" in blue.
Now, that option has been saved to our HTC One M8.
This concludes our tutorial on how to choose a primary language for Google voice typing on an HTC One M8.
